Refund and Repayment Policy 

The refund and repayment requirements apply when a student makes changes in course load, 
withdraws, drops out, takes an unapproved leave of absence, falls to return from an approved leave 
of absence, or Is expelled. 

If a recipient of Title IV aid (ex. Stafford loans, PLUS loans, PELL grant, SEOG, etc.) withdraws 
during a payment period (or a period of enrollment), the institution must calculate the amount of Title 
IV aid the student did not earn. Unearned Title IV funds must be returned to the Title IV programs. 
If any withdrawals occur after the specified sixty percent (60%) point of the semester calendar, no 
adjustment will be made toward the Title IV initial award. 

The effective date for refunds of tuition or repayments are made according to the date the 
student notifies Oakwood College and completes the withdrawal form. If the student fails to offi- 
cially withdraw or appropriately notify Oakwood College, the last recorded date of class attended by 
the student, documented by Oakwood College, will be the effective date. 

Refund 

Institutional charges (tuition and fees, room and board on campus) are refunded appropriately 
as follows for drop/withdrawal:

Financial Assistance 

Scholarships are charged back at the same rate tuition is refunded. If the funds were paid by 
the Title IV Federal Financial Aid, the refunds are based on the U.S. Department of Education's 
Return of Title IV Funds Policy. 

As of August 23, 2000, students receiving Title IV financial aid who withdraw from Oakwood 
College will be subject to the new policy. This policy requires that when a recipient of Title IV grants 
or loan assistance withdraws from college during a semester, the institution must determine the 
amount of Title IV grant or loan assistance which the student earned as of the withdrawal date. The 
unearned portion must be returned to the Title IV programs in accordance with Federal Regulations. 
In certain instances, the student may also be required to return Title IV funds to the Department of 
Education in addition to that which the school is required to return. [CFR 668.22] 

Students receiving financial aid should consult with the Financial Aid Office concerning the 
possible effect of awards received caused by withdrawal or change in courseload. Any remaining 
balance on account must be paid at the time of withdrawal or dismissal.

Students applying for the Federal Student Financial Assistance Program (known as Title IV) ^1 
must comply with the following procedures in a timely manner. A student's noncompliance may 

result in the loss of potential benefits and will result in a protracted and negative institutional regis- ^— 

tration experience if the student needs the federal resources to assist in his or her educational it_ 
expenses. 

The following procedures are strongly advised: XZ 



ii 
tr 
c 



1 . Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). After the FAFSA has been 
processed, a Student Aid Report (SAR) will be mailed to you. Once you receive your SAR, 
check it for accuracy of information. The Financial Aid Office (FAO) will electronically retrieve it; 
however, Oakwood College must be listed as one of the schools of attendance in order for us to 
retrieve it. tl 

2. If the SAR states that it has been selected for review in a process called verification, you must 
submit the college's Verification Worksheet (available from the FAO or the Internet) and the 
following documents: tl 

a. A signed copy of the base year federal income tax return to the FAO. Base year is the 

year that precedes the academic year for which aid is being applied. For example, ^ 
applicants for the 2007-2008 academic year would submit their 2006 federal income ^ 
tax return. If the student did not and will not file a tax return, then he/she must submit 
the appropriate copies of his/her W-2's. 

b. Legal or biological parents of dependent students must submit a signed copy of their 
complete base year federal income tax return(s) to the FAO. If the parent(s) did not 



tz 



22 



kZ 



and will not file a base year tax return, then they must submit copies of their W-2's. 
c. The student, spouse, or parent must submit official documents that substantiate the 
annual amounts of untaxed income for the base year. Untaxed income may include 
Social Security benefits, pension benefits, workmen's compensation, or parsonage 
allowance. If the documentation is not an official/regulatory form with appropriate sig- 
natures, it will not be accepted by the FAO. 

3. Students applying for the Federal Stafford Loan or the Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students 
(PLUS) must submit a signed loan application to the FAO or online with electronic signature. 

4. Students applying for scholarships through Oakwood College must submit all required docu- 
mentation by the specified deadline dates. 

5. An entrance interview session must be attended by all first-time loan borrowers before loan 
proceeds can be applied to the student's account. 

Financial Aid Policies 

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Semesters, Terms (LEAP and Certificate Programs), 
and Sessions (Summer). 

Federal regulations require the college to establish reasonable standards for measuring aca- 
demic progress. The college must monitor participants in student financial assistance programs to 
ensure that those academic standards are met, and that students make real progress toward 
competing their degrees. The policy must contain a qualitative component, a quantitative compo- 
nent, and an overall time-frame component. A student must maintain satisfactory academic progress 
regardless of whether the student was a previous recipient of financial aid or not. 

Qualitative Component. The college's current academic standards are the qualitative standards 
for this policy. This policy articulation also recognizes the cumulative grade point average as the 
sole numeric measure. This change effectively terminates use of the unadjusted grade point aver- 
age in academic decisions. Federal regulations specifically require students who have earned 61 or 
more hours (juniors and seniors) to maintain the minimum cumulative grade point average required 
by the college for graduation. This component will be evaluated before the fall semester. Those 
minimum standards are outlined in the Oakwood College Bulletin as follows: 



Hours Attempted 


Required GPA 


0-29 


1.70 


30 - 60 


2.00 


61-92 


2.00 


93-128 


2.00 



Quantitative Component. Once at least 24 semester hours have been attempted, a student's 
cumulative hours passed must be at least 75 percent of the cumulative hours attempted. For 
example, a student enrolling in 12 hours per term for two semesters would be required to pass 18 of 
those hours to retain financial aid benefits. A student enrolling in six hours per term for four semes- 
ters would also be required to pass at least 18 hours. The successful pass rate increases to 80 
percent once the student attempts 61 or more hours. This component will be evaluated at the time 
of each application. 

Overall Time Frame: Students are no longer eligible to receive Title IV federal financial assistance 
after attempting the lesser of 1 50 percent of the published academic program hours, or 1 5 full-time 
equivalent semesters. Afull-time equivalent semester is deemed to contain a minimum of 1 2 hours. 
For instance, if the published length of an academic program is 120 hours, the maximum time frame 
established by the college must not exceed 180 attempted credit hours (that is, 120 x 1.5). 

23 



Procedures: 



t 

t- 



Transfer, Summer, Consortium, and Transient Hours: Students transferring to the college are 
assumed to be maintaining reasonable academic progress. All hours transferred from prior or 
concurrent attendance at other schools will be considered in establishing the class standing for t_ 
grade requirements, and are integral in determining the overall time frame allowed for financial aid 
eligibility. The GPAfrom other colleges will not factor into the cumulative GPAat Oakwood College. 






Grades: Courses with nonassigned grades, including withdrawals, are considered in determination 
of the percentage of hours completed toward the degree. Refer to the College Bulletin for the 
regulations concerning the effect on cumulative hours attempted. Acceptable grades are A, B, C, ^ 
D, and P. Unacceptable grades are: F, I, W, NC, FA, AU, DG, and U. All of these grades are 
considered in evaluating the qualitative, quantitative, and overall time-frame components. 






Second Bachelor's Degree/Dual Degree: Students seeking a second undergraduate or dual 
degree will be permitted to enroll in up to six full-time equivalent semesters beyond the first bachelor's 
or dual major. This requirement is based on completion of program requirements, and not neces- t_ 
sarily actual graduation. Students seeking a second degree are not Pell eligible.

Loss of Aid Eligibility: According to federal regulations, a student is not allowed to receive further tl 
aid from Title IV student financial assistance if he or she does not meet the college's standards of 
satisfactory progress. Additionally, certain state and institutional scholarships may be rescinded 
as a result of failure to make reasonable progress. Certain scholarships awarded by the Office of %^ 
Enrollment Management will be forfeited immediately when the grade point average falls below a 
prescribed minimum, which may be stricter than the minimums cited for federal purposes. Stu- 
dents who become ineligible to receive further federal aid will be notified at the address listed on the ^ 
most recent Student Aid Report (SAR) obtained by the Office of Financial Aid, or a more recent one, 
if provided by the student prior to the last day of the semester. Students receive first notice of 
grades and are held responsible to regularly monitor their cumulative grade point average. All other t2 
notices are a courtesy of the college. 



Appeals: The following procedure has been established for those who lose federal Title IV financial 
assistance eligibility due to failure to maintain satisfactory academic progress. The procedure 
must be followed precisely and without exception. Failure to adhere to the procedure may result in 
the right to a hearing, or an automatic denial on the merits. NO PERSONAL APPEARANCES tl 
WILL BE GRANTED before the Financial Aid Appeals Committee. (Note: No appeal authority has 
been established for certain scholarships from the Office of Enrollment Management or from the 



tl 



State of Alabama for the Alabama State Grant.) tl

Financial Aid. No other hearings will be scheduled, except as determined by the discretion tl 
of the vice president for Academic Affairs. 

3. The appeal application will be reviewed and a decision made within 72 hours of the sched- 
uled hearing. Decisions and related provisions will be announced in writing by the assis- tl 
tantvice president for Academic Affairs. Decisions of the Financial Aid Committee are final.

Reinstatement: Students who lose eligibility for Title IV financial assistance because of failure to 
maintain reasonable progress toward a degree may reapply. No reapplication will be considered 
until the student clears the deficiency or attains the minimum grade point average. 

Students who lose financial aid eligibility because of failure to maintain satisfactory progress 
toward a degree may reapply for financial aid after clearing the deficiency; no aid will be granted 
retroactively. 

Verification of Enrollment 

Students who require enrollment verification for student loan deferment purposes must bring the 
forni or a written request to the Records Office. When a student is enrolled full-time, freshman and 
senior verification will be for one year, junior for two years, and sophomore for three years. 

Transfer Students Eligibility for Aid 

Transfer students are eligible for federal aid during their first semester of attendance at the 
college. Refer to the Satisfactory Academic Progress brochure obtainable from the Office of Finan- 
cial Aid or the Enrollment Management Office. 

Remedial Course Work 

If a student is enrolled solely in a remedial program, the student is not eligible for federal aid. A 
student may receive federal aid for a limited amount of noncredit or reduced credit remedial course 
work that is included as part of a regular program. Once the student has enrolled for remedial 
courses, his/her aid may be adjusted accordingly. 

Available Funds 

Federal Pell Grant: A nonrepayable, federally funded grant program for undergraduate stu- 
dents only. Pell Grant awards vary in amount each year and are based on financial need and hours 
of enrollment. 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG): A nonrepayable, feder- 
ally funded and university-based grant program. Awards are made to early applicants who demon- 
strate the most financial need. 

Federal Work Study: A need-based student employment program through which the federal 
government subsidizes earnings for hours worked in special student employment positions. 

Alabama Student Assistance Program (ASAP): State funded grants in varying amounts 
available to Alabama residents who demonstrate financial need. 

Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans: Subsidized loans, which means the federal govern- 
ment will pay the interest on the loan while the student is in school and during specified deferments. 
The student must demonstrate financial need to receive this loan. 

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans: Loans that students may borrow regardless of need 
but will have to pay all interest charges. 

Federal PLUS Loans: Loans that parents of dependent students may obtain to pay for the 
students' education.*

fees and transportation costs to off-campus medical facilities are the responsibility of the student. 

The health of each student is important. To assist Health Services in providing the care needed, 
a medical history, which includes laboratory testing, a physical examination within the last 12 d 
months, and a TB test within the last 1 2 months, is required. A record of immunizations is required 
by Oakwood College and the state of Alabama. This record includes documentation of polio, teta- 
nus, diptheria, measles, mumps, rubella (2MMR) and hepatitis B series and meningococcal. All tl 
students born after January 1 957 must show proof of two doses of live vaccine measles. Be 
sure this information arrives before registration. 

All students entering Oakwood College must have medical insurance coverage. Insurance for 
students without medical coverage may be acquired through the school. The cost for the year is 
divided into two premiums, August and January. Students are enrolled in the insurance plan at 
registration. The fee is part of the student's bill each semester. If a student wishes to use his/her 
own personal medical coverage, this must be indicated on the insurance waiver card 
each semester during registration. A card or copy of membership is to be carried by each 
student in case of an emergency. All international students are required to accept the insur- 
ance offered by the school. For further information contact Health Services at (256)726-

student Handbook 

In every community there are laws. It Is the responsibility of every student to secure the 
Student Handbook CD from the Office of Student Services and read the rules and regulations 
governing student life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. The Student Handbook is 
also available online at www.oakwood.edu. Familiarity with and acceptance of the requirements set 
forth in this book will make life at Oakwood College more interesting and certainly more enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his/her scholastic attainment 
but also upon his/her general conduct and attitude toward the community in which he/she lives. As 
a citizen of the college community the student must realize that he or she has been admitted to a 
privileged group and that he or she has no right to work against that group. Any student who violates 
the rules of the college may be asked to withdraw (see sections Student Citizenship, below, and 
Withdrawal from the College due to Disciplinary Actions, in the Student Handbook). 

Student Citizenship 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of entering any department of the 
college is subject to supervision and jurisdiction from the time of arrival in Huntsville until his/her 
connection is tenninated by graduation or by any officially approved withdrawal. The record of each 
student is reviewed periodically, and his or her continuation at the college is based upon his/her 
attitudes and general conduct, as well as scholastic attainment. 

Listed among the governing policies of the college are infractions which are considered cause 
for suspension and may be cause for dismissal or serious disciplinary action for the first offense. 
Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these practices would knowingly be 
accepted at Oakwood College the first infraction may result in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influence is detrimental may 
be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the campus and may be sub- 
jected to charges of trespassing should he or she return without permission from the administration. 
A student suspended for disciplinary reasons will not be allowed to make up class work assigned 
and done during his/her absence. Missed work will incur a grade of "F" and will be computed in the 
student's final grade. 

Weekend/Overnight Leaves 

Pennission for an overnight or weekend leave from the campus may be obtained from the 
appropriate residential housing office for students who live in residential housing. For traveling, 
written permission from the parent or guardian must be on file for every student who is not of legal 
age ( 1 9 years of age in Alabama). 

Use of Vehicles 

Since the ownership and use of an automobile frequently militate against success in college, 
students are not encouraged to bring automobiles with them unless absolutely necessary. Fresh- 
men are not pennitted to bring automobiles to the college or the vicinity, or to operate automobiles 
owned by other individuals. 

All students, whether living in the residence halls or in the community, who own or operate any 
type of motor vehicle (e.g., car, motorcycle, scooter) must register it with the Office of Security at 
the time of registration for the fall semester, or within 24 hours of his/her arrival should arrival be after 
registration has been concluded, or within 24 hours of its procurement within any semester of the 
school year.

Academic Policies 



Curriculum 



The curriculum at Oakwood College reflects very distinctly the educational philosophy, 
purposes, and needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. From its earliest history. Seventh-day 
Adventist education has been multipurpose — a combination of theory and practice. Strong empha- 
sis has been given to providing students with a college program that would grant them job entry and 
provide opportunities for the development of a personal code of moral and social values for Christian 
living in contemporary society. It is for this reason that the curricular offerings at Oakwood College 
have a very pragmatic character. This is true in the humanities, social sciences, applied sciences, 
and natural sciences. Because of the needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as 
society at large, Oakwood College has developed some disciplines that are almost exclusively 
professional. However, regardless of the amount of vocational emphasis, all baccalaureate and 
associate degree programs have been so organized that there is a common core of general educa- 
tion studies required of all students. 

The mission of the college strongly emphasizes health, the importance of service to the 
world, the integration of spiritual instruction and understanding as a part of intellectual growth, and 
the facilitation of cultural and personal affirmation. The general education core curriculum includes

The Academic Year 

The academic or college year usually starts in late August and ends in July. It consists of two 
semesters, each of which covers a period of approximately fifteen weeks. Provision may be made 
for mini sessions during the summer and winter breaks. 

Schedule of Classes 

Each year the College publishes a schedule of classes which lists the courses offered, the time 
of meetings, the rooms, and the instructors. The College reserves the right to cancel any course 
offered for which there are less than six students and to set limits on class size when necessary. 

Course Numbers and Symbols 

Courses of instruction are classified as remedial, lower division, and upper division. Remedial 
courses, numbered 090 through 099 (not counted for graduation credits), are courses which may be 
required of certain students. Lower division courses are numbered 1 00 through 299; upper division 
courses are numbered 300 through 499. Students should take each level in turn to avoid scheduling 
problems. Courses with (W) are designated writing courses. Code to course abbreviations are:

Credit 

The unit of credit is the semester hour. A semester hour is the amount of credit earned for the 
satisfactory completion of one hour a week lecture or recitation or at least two hours a week 
laboratory practice throughout one semester. 

Hyphenated courses (e.g., 101-102) indicate that the sequence of courses should betaken in 
order. Commas separating courses (e.g., 101 , 102) indicate that the courses may be taken out of 
sequence. The designation 3-3 indicates that the course carries three semester hours of credit 
each semester for two semesters, which, being hyphenated, should be taken in sequence.

study Load 

Class load is governed by classification and previous academic performance as follows: 



Classification 


Minimum Cum. GPA 


Maximum Load 


Academic probation 


below 2.00 


13 hours 


All regular students 


2.00 


17 hours 


Sophomores and juniors 


3.00 


18 hours 


Seniors 


3.00 


20 hours 



The maximum class load for any situation includes incompletes and courses by cooperative 
arrangement (neighboring colleges). 

A class load of 12 credit hours is considered full-time and will satisfy the following authorities: 

1 . Immigration and Naturalization Service 

2. Selective Service 

3. Veterans Administration 

4. Health, Education, and Welfare 

5. U.S. Department of Labor 

Classification of Students 

New students are classified upon acceptance by the Office of Enrollment Management. Re- 
tuming students' classification for the year is determined by the amount of credit they have earned 
at the beginning of the college year. A student who may meet the hour requirement, but whose 
cumulative grade point average is below 2.00, will be listed in the next lower class until the cumula- 
tive grade point average is raised to 2.00 or better. Student classes are organized early in the fall 
semester according to the following levels of academic achievement (remedial courses are not 
included).

1 . Postbaccalaureate refers to a student with a bachelor's degree who is enrolled for part-time 
or full-time work. 

2. Unclassified applies to any student who meets admission standards but who has no present 
plans to pursue a degree or to a student whose classification cannot be determined at the 
time of admission. 

3. Nondegree refers to a student enrolled in the traditional college courses and who desires to 
take a course or courses for personal development. Courses are limited to three semester 
hours or one course per semester. 

4. Transient admission applies to a student submitting evidence that he or she is in good and 
regular standing in an accredited college or university but who desires temporary admis- 
sion to Oakwood College for one semester, the grades and credits of which will be trans- 
ferred to his or her original institution. 

5. Visiting student (refer to the Cooperative Programs section in this bulletin for details).

Registration 






Freshmen are limited to lower division courses except by permission of the head of the depart- C- 
ment in which the course is being taught. The lower division courses are open to freshmen and 
sophomores and should be completed before the student progresses to the junior and senior years. 

A student entering the third year of college work who lacks any of the prescribed courses of the C^i| 
lower division must first register for such prescribed courses of the lower division and then complete 
the program from the upper division. 

Beginning freshmen on academic probation will not be allowed to advance to regular academic O 
standing until all academic deficiencies have been removed and at least 1 2 hours of other college 
credit have been earned with a minimum GPAof 2.00. 

Freshmen will not be allowed to advance to sophomore status until they have passed the C^ 
Freshman Composition Sequence and have a GPAof at least 1.70. Sophomores will not be permit- 
ted to advance to junior status or take any upper division courses until they have a GPA of at least 
2.00. Juniors will not be advanced to senior status or permitted to submit an approved final year (^ 
schedule for graduation until they have passed the English Proficiency Test or EN 250 and have a 
GPA of at least 2.00.

Oakwood College complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). 
A student's record is regarded as confidential, and release of this information is regulated by the 
FERPA Act. Students have the right to inspect their records at any time. Parents of students C 
termed "dependent" for income tax purposes are entitled to receive information relating to the stu- 
dents' educational records upon request. A copy of the act is on file in the Records Office.

Registration includes advising, selection of courses, and payment of fees. Students are re- Q 



c 



quired to register on the designated registration dates as announced in the bulletin. Information on 
registration is available at the registration site. 

Students are not officially registered for courses until their "registration forms" have been pro- C 

cessed by the Records Office and all fees have been paid. ^ 

Late Registration C^ 

Students failing to register during the scheduled registration periods are assessed a late regis- 
tration fee of $137. Class periods missed because of late registration are counted as absences C 
from the class. Students registering late may be required by the advisor and the vice president for ^ 

38 Q 



Academic Affairs to reduce their class load. Late registrants are required to make up course work 
already missed. 

Withdrawal From College Courses 

If students want to add or drop a class or change a section after having completed registration 
of credit or audit, they should follow these procedures: 

1 . Drop. Before the deadline (one week after midsemester): (a) obtain form from the Record's 
Office, (b) secure proper signatures, (c) pay the appropriate fee, and (d) return the form to 
the Records Office. Expect a W for the class if dropped between the last day for a 50 
percent refund and the deadline. Forgetting or failure to drop officially through processing a 
form will result in final grade of FA. 

2. Add. By the last day of late registration, follow the same steps (a-d) as listed above under 
"Drop." A charge of $10 is made for each change of schedule until the last day for any 
tuition refund, except when the change is made necessary by the cancellation of a sched- 
uled class or the change of class time which renders it impossible for students to maintain 
their original schedule. 

3. To discontinue a course of study, students must complete a terminal leave form one week 
before final examinations begin, which may be secured from the Office of Student Services. 

Withdrawal From College Due to Disciplinary Action 

A student suspended for disciplinary reasons will not be allowed to make up class work as- 
signed and done during his/her absence. Missed work will incur a grade of "F" and will be computed 
in the student's final grade. 

Final Examinations 

Should the final examination schedule require a student to complete four examinations in one 
day, arrangements may be made with the department chair to complete one of the examinations at 
another time. Otherwise, all students must take the final examination in each course at the time 
listed in the official time schedule. Exceptions may be made only by the vice president for Aca- 
demic Affairs. 

English Proficiency Examination 

Each student is required to take a proficiency examination in English during the junior year. 
Upper division transfer students who have completed Freshman Composition are required to take 
the English Proficiency Examination during the first semester in which the examination is offered. 
This examination is administered as scheduled in the calendar. Students who fail to pass the 
examination twice are required to enroll in and pass EN 250 English Fundamentals in order to 
qualify for graduation. Students who take EN 304 at Oakwood College and receive at least a B 
(3.00) are exempt from this examination. A fee of $30 is charged for this examination. See the 
Department of English and Foriegn Languages for details. 

Exit Examination 

All seniors are required to pass a departmental exit examination in their major area of study 
prior to graduation. Exit examinations may be internal or external, written by the department or 
obtained from an external sources such as the Graduate Record Examination.

The charge for life experience credit is $35 per credit hour. Cr- 



c 



A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having competence or exposure in a certain 
area covered by a required course may meet an academic requirement by passing a CLEP test. 
The following policies apply to the program: , C^ 



1 . The recommended maximum number of CLEP credits a student may apply toward gradu- 
ation is 32 semester hours. ^ 

2. In each major the maximum number of CLEP subject examination credits a student may 
earn is determined by the major department. 

3. In the case of the general education requirements, the Academic Policies Committee will C, 
determine which courses can be taken by CLEP and how much credit a student may earn 
from the basic general education requirements without overlapping in the subject area. 

4. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before credit can be granted. Changes C^ 
in scores by ETS (Educational Testing Services) may change acceptable scores by Oak- 
wood College. 

5. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course credit but no letter grade shall Q 
be assigned or quality points considered. 

6. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may not repeat the course for 
which credit was given by examination for a grade. C 

7. Incoming students wishing to take the CLEP test before entering Oakwood College must 
have the approval of the Records Office before the test is taken. 

8. All CLEP scores previously obtained at another school are subject to review by the Records C 
Office. ^

Grade Point Average ' ^ 

■ , ■-*, 

The grade point average (GPA) for the semester is computed by totaling quality points earned C» 

in all courses attempted and dividing by the quality hours attempted (GPA=QP/QHA). Credits are -^ 
included in calculating the GPA for grades of F, FAand I. The symbols AU, NC, DG, IP, NR, W, and 

P/U are disregarded in computing the grade point average. Cr 

The academic progress record allows for repeated courses without GPA penalty. However, the ^ 
GPA used to determine the eligibility for financial aid includes all work attempted. 

Pass/Unsatisfactory Procedures -^ 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass/unsatisfactory basis, a student must be a sophomore, C» 

junior, or senior, and must not be on academic probation. Not more than 1 6 hours may be taken on ^ 
this basis. The pass/unsatisfactory system applies to elective courses only. A pass is equivalent 

to a C, although some graduate and professional schools treat the pass as a D. C 

Approval for the P/U option should be obtained at the Records Office before the close of late ^ 
registration. Registration changes in the process are final as of the last day to drop without aca- 

demic penalty. Q^. 

C 
Deferred Grades

A deferred grade is assigned when a student is unable to complete the work because of equip- ^ 

ment failure, insufficient time, or research material having arrived late, or deemed not the student's 

fault. C

42 C 



Incomplete Work 

When at the end of a semester students are behind in their ciasswork, the teacher does not 
automatically grant a grade of I for more time to do the requirements. However, because of interrup- 
tive Illness or other unavoidable circumstances, students may request the privilege of receiving a 
grade of I to allow more time to fulfill class requirements. They must apply in time so that a final 
decision is made before the beginning of final examination week. The procedures to be followed 
are: 

1 . Obtain and fill out a "Request and Authorization for Incomplete" from the Office of Academic 
Affairs. 

2. Attach a physican's statement if the reason is medical. 

3. Obtain the appropriate signatures. 

4. Return the form to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs at least five working 
days before the beginning of final examinations. 

An I may be changed to a regular grade when the class work is completed within the approved 
deadline. Such a deadline might range from a few days to several weeks, but no longer than the 
sixth week of the next semester, even when the student is not registered the next semester. The 
I automatically coverts to an F if not removed within the prescribed time. Should more time, 
because of further illness or unavoidable circumstances, be needed to remove the incomplete, the 
student may, before the deadline expires, request in writing an extension of time from the Academic 
Policies Committee. 

Repeated Courses 

There is no limit to the number of times a course may be repeated. The better grade for the 
repeated course will be accepted for credit. 

Auditing Courses 

Persons who are interested in auditing courses should register during regular registration. No 
credit is given for a course audited, and the tuition charged is one-half the regular charge for credit. 
A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a credit basis after the first week of the 
course. 

Correspondence Courses 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with Home Study Interna- 
tional, which is the extension division of the Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 1 2 semester hours of correspondence work may apply toward a baccalaureate 
degree program and 8 semester hours toward an associate degree. All requests for correspon- 
dence work must be approved by the Records Office and /or the Academic Policies Committee. 

While enrolled at Oakwood, a student will not be permitted to carry correspondence if the 
course is available at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension work. Where this is 
an absolute necessity, the official transcript for the work completed must be in the Records Office 
by the first business day in March for spring graduation. 

A correspondence course with a D grade or below is unacceptable. No correspondence credit 
will be entered on the student's record until a minimum of 16 hours in residence with a cumulative 
average of at least C has been earned. Home Study Institute courses do not meet the Alabama 
State Certification requirements for education majors.

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scholastic achievement, loyalty to college 
standards, and exemplary citizenship, the college conducts an annual Honors Convocation. To be 
eligible for participation the student must have a cumulative GPA of not less than 3.50 for a mini- Cr 
mum of 24 hours earned at Oakwood College or a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and a minimum of 33 
hours earned at Oakwood College. All grades must be posted by the end of January.

SummaCum Laude Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.90 , . -^- 

Academic Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal ^ 



All students whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.00 are placed on academic probation. This 
status requires all academic probationary students to take part in the academic improvement pro- C» 
gram conducted by the Center for Academic Success (CAS). Failure of an academic probation 
student to take part in this program may result in dismissal from the college. Students who fail to 
make acceptable academic progress in view of the established policies and procedures of the C 
institution will be suspended. A first suspension because of poor academic performance will result 
in the student being ineligible for readmission or reacceptance consideration for a period of one 
semester from the date of suspension. When suspended a second time, students become eligible C 
for readmission or reacceptance after one calendar year from the suspension date, providing that 
during that time they have attended another accredited college for at least one semester, carrying a 
minimum of 1 2 semester hours with no grade lower than C. In both cases, to be so considered, the C 
student must apply for readmission through the Records Office. £- 

C- 

44 ^ 






Any student who after four academic semesters or 61 semester hours has not attained a 
cumulative GPA of 2.00 will be recommended for suspension. During the suspension, the student 
must attend another accredited college carrying a minimum class load of 1 2 hours and passing with 
no grade lower than C. Class schedules must include courses previously taken at Oakwood where

Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) is a consortium of Seventh-day Adventist colleges and univer- Q, 
sities in North America under the auspices of the Board of Higher Education, General Conference of 
Seventh-day Adventists, Maryland. 

The ACA consortium provides opportunities to qualified undergraduate students for study in C. 
other countries, such as Argentina, Austria, France, Kenya, and Spain, while completing the re- 
quirements of their programs at their home colleges. This allows students to be immersed in the 
culture and life of another country while becoming conversant in its language. Through such expe- CL 
riences students also may gain an appreciation of, and perhaps an inspiration for, mission or other 
multicultural service (see Records Office for details).

teach as student missionaries. CL 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student missionary, the student shall 
receive three hours of elective credit on a pass/fail basis in the area of Student Foreign 
Service. Quality of service is determined by a written evaluation from the immediate super- ^ 
visor or appropriate official over the student missionary. Students may opt for an additional 
three hours should they secure prior approval from the instructional department and the 
Academic Policies Committee establishing that more specialized mission services will be (^ 
experienced, such as, but not limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

Student missionaries in active service are considered full-time students. Students who have CZ 
received BA or BS degrees are not considered Oakwood students.

Other Academic Information 

Writing Emphasis Courses 

Two writing emphasis courses of at least two hours each are required of all upper division 
students. Each department will designate and supervise at least one required course for its majors 
which will emphasize essay type tests and/or written reports or a term paper. A (W) after a course 
title designates a writing course. 

Summer School 

The college offers a limited number of brief intensive courses and workshops. Undergraduate 
courses in the teacher certification program are also offered. 

Transient Letters 

Students desiring to register at another college or university with the intent of returning must 
obtain a transient letter from the Records Office, which recommends the student for temporary 
admission to the other school without the student having to go through normal admission require- 
ments. Transient letters, however, are not granted for attendance at colleges or universities within 
a fifty-mile radius of Huntsville during the fall or spring semesters. 

Transient credit with grades below C- is unacceptable. Acceptable credit is recorded as trans- 
fer credit. Students from other schools desiring transient admission to Oakwood must provide an 
official letter of support from the home institution. 

Transcripts 

The Records Office releases official transcripts of a student's work at the college upon the 
student's written request. Telephone requests cannot be honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript to use, but official transcripts must be sent 
directly to other colleges, organizations, and approved sources. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning the record of any student 
who has unpaid accounts or other charges, or who is in delinquent or default status in payment of 
student loans. 

Two weeks should be allowed for the processing and mailing of the transcript after the request 
has been received. Official transcripts from other institutions which have been presented to Oak- 
wood for admission and evaluation of credit become the property of Oakwood and are not reissued 
or copied for release. Each student is entitled to one official transcript without charge. A fee of 
$2.00 is charged for each additional official transcript and $1 .00 for an unofficial transcript for stu- 
dents not enrolled. Other fees assessed as applicable. 

Class Absences 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory appointments. Absences 
are counted from the first official day of classes. If for any reason the total hours of absences are 
double the number of credit hours of the course per semester, credit may, at the discretion of the 
instructor, be forfeited and a grade of FA be recorded. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student from required class 
work. The student, however, must make arrangements with the teacher for every anticipated school

trip and other authorized leaves at least 72 hours before the beginning of such anticipated sched- 
ules. All makeup work involving examinations and other class requirements must be made up 
within seven days after the absence occurs. ^ 

It is the responsibility of students to keep a record of their absences, to keep themselves 
informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examinations at the time prescribed by the 
instructor, and to turn in all assignments when they are due. Q, 



C 






Oakwood College is dedicated to scholastic integrity. Consequently, students of the college 
are required to maintain high Christian standards of honesty. If students are found or suspected of 
engaging in any of the following types of academic misconduct, the procedures set forth in this C. 
policy will be implemented. ^ 

Typesof Academic Dishonesty: i^ 



Dishonesty in testing (e.g., copying from another student's paper, using unauthorized ma- 
terials, or collaborating with any other person without authority from the instructor during an C^ 
examination; stealing test materials; obtaining test information prior, during, or after an 
administered examination; or any other form of test dishonesty). 

Plagiarism — defined as unacknowledged use of another's work (e.g., submitting any writ- (^ 
ten, oral, aesthetic, computer, or laboratory work prepared totally or in part by another 
person; such work need not be copyrighted). 
Any other practice deemed by the college as academic misconduct not listed above. 



c 

c 
c 
c 






If a teacher finds irrefutable evidence of academic dishonesty, the teacher should immediately 
speak with the student and issue zero credit for the particular examination, assignment, or project. 

If academic misconduct is suspected by a teacher, that teacher must follow certain steps. C» 



1 . The teacher must first speak with the student about the question of dishonesty. If the 
student acknowledges engaging in academic misconduct, the student will be given no C 
credit for the particular examination, assignment, or project. 

2. If the situation cannot be resolved between the teacher and student, then it must be brought 
to the attention of the teacher's department chair. Cr 

3. If the department chair is unable to resolve the matter, the Vice President for Academic 
Affairs must then be consulted, and may refer the issue to the Academic Appeals Commit- 
tee. C 

4. Subsequent incidents of academic dishonesty make a student eligible for dismissal from 
the college. Students are, however, given the option of appealing this decision to the Aca- 
demic Appeals Committee. Cr 

5. Each established incident of academic misconduct shall be departmentally documented 
and submitted to both the student, the student's major department chair, the vice president 
for Academic Affairs, and the vice president for Student Services. ^

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional matters such as perceived 
unfairness, grading methodology, cheating, or some other misunderstanding within or without the 
classroom is encouraged to confer first with the teacher ofthe class and, if deemed necessary, with Q 



48 



C 



the teacher's department chair. If the matter is not resolved satisfactorily at the first two levels, the 
student should contact the vice president for Academic Affairs. 

The vice president for Academic Affairs will review the matter to (a) make a final determination of 
the matter, or (b) refer the matter to the Academic Appeal Committee for further review and recom- 
mendation. In either case, the final decision is the responsibility of the vice president for Academic 
Affairs. 

The Academic Appeal Committee receives referrals directly from the vice president for Aca- 
demic Affairs. Cases are referred to this committee if the vice president for Academic Affairs 
determines more information is needed to make an equitable decision. The process is as follows: 
(a) the vice president for Academic Affairs notifies the chair of the Academic Appeal Committee of 
the student's concern, (b) the aggrieved student submits a written report of the complaint to the 
chair of the Academic Appeal Committee, and (c) a recommendation is made to the vice president 
for Academ ic Affai rs. 

Students or faculty members have the option to appear in person before the Academic Appeal 
Committee, bringing documentation to support their views; however, it is not required that they 
appear in person. It should be understood that the purpose of the appeals process is to peaceably 
resolve issues which have not been resolved through other means. Therefore, the approach to 
problem resolution in the appeals process is through consensus, so far as is possible. 

The membership of the Academic Appeal Committee consists of six individuals: the USM 
academic vice president (chair), two elected student representatives, two full-time teaching faculty, 
and one full-time staff member. The vice president for Academic Affairs or designee may choose to 
sit with the Academic Appeal Committee for purposes of hearing the discussion or for clarification of 
issues, but not for voting purposes. 

Bulletin Selection 

Students may meet degree requirements under the bulletin of initial registration or any bulletin 
in effect during the time of continuous residence at Oakwood. Selecting the senior year bulletin 
must be done prior to the final semester of the graduating year. Students who discontinue enroll- 
ment must meet the following bulletin requirements: 

1 . If not enrolled for one calendar year or less, students may return under any bulletin in effect 
during their previous continuous residence. Transfer credit will be accepted provided that a 
transient letter request has received prior approval from the Records Office. 

2. Students not enrolled for more than one calendar year must meet the requirements of the 
current bulletin. 

3. Seniors with 9 hours or less remaining at the time of spring graduation have a maximum of 
two calendar years to complete their requirements and remain under the bulletin they 
selected during their senior year. 

4. All transfer students must fulfill the requirements of the current bulletin. 

Double Major 

Students may enroll for a double major provided they meet all of the requirements for both 
majors. Pursuing a double major will require more than 1 28 hours and take longer than four years 
to complete. 



49 



Medicine 

Biology and chemistry are the most frequently chosen majors at Oakwood for students prepar- 
ing for a career in medicine. However, students from every academic major are accepted into 
medical school. Diversity is actually encouraged by many medical schools which have come to 
realize that students who pursue majors in art, literature, mathematics, engineering, and other 
areas of liberal arts study tend to become well-rounded, highly competent physicians. Most medi- 
cal schools have the following science requirements: one year of general biology, two years of 
chemistry — general and organic, one year of general physics, and mathematics. 

Medical School Early Selection Program 

Students wishing to participate in the Oakwood College-Loma Linda University early selection 
programs (ESP) must apply by January 15 of their sophomore year. Students completing two 
summers as an ESP student in either dentistry or medicine will receive the appropriate hours on a 
pass/fail basis as follows: NS 320 Orientation to Dentistry and NS 321 Orientation to Medicine. 
Students actively involved in the ESP are considered full-time students.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT SERVICES 

Center for Academic Success 

The mission of the Center for Academic Success (CAS) is to assist students to gain the sl<ills 
necessary to do college-level work. The program, in collaboration with the Departments of 
Mathematics and Computer Science, and English and Communications, offers Introduction to College 
Math, Composition Skills Review, and College Reading Strategies to select groups of student who 
need to develop basic skills. In addition to attending regular lecture classes, students must attend 
a laboratory as prescribed by the instructor. However, ail labs are available to self-motivated students 
as they assist students across the curricula in tutorials, exercises, applications, and reviews. 

The laboratory component provides opportunity for individualized instruction consistent with 
students' needs and desires. This also gives students the opportunity to assess their deficiencies, 
work to correct them, and receive instant feedback. Upgraded tutorial services supplement the 
developmental laboratories through the cooperative efforts of specialists and the tutor supervisor. 

Freshman Studies 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instructional, and supportive 
services to first-year students. Its purpose is to increase their potential for academic success and 
personal adjustment to the demands of college life. Beginning in the 1999-2000 school year, all 
entering first-year students and lower division transfer students will be required to take a semester- 
long orientation in addition to the week-long orientation. 

00 097 Strategies for Academic Success 

Beginning Fall Semester 2007, this revised course replaces the former course PY 095 Scholarship 
Skills and will be taught exclusively from the CAS department. This course is designed to 
effectively guide new students toward academic success through the utilization of cutting edge 
study and learning strategies. 

All new students admitted to Oakwood College on academic probation and/or having composite 
score of less than 17 on the ACT or less than 840 on the SAT test are required to register for this 
course the first semester. 

00 101 Freshman Orientation Seminar 

The Freshman Orientation Seminar is designed to provide pertinent information to help new 
students to make the most of college, this life, and the life to come. This will be accomplished 
by focusing on challenges that integrate the academic, social, and spiritual facets of life, therefore, 
placing an emphasis on opening the doors to "Education, Excellence, Eternity." 

This course is required of all freshmen and new students entering with less than 30 semester 
hours of transfer credit. Students are not allowed to withdraw from this course except through the 
terminal leave process. 

Orientation 

The week preceding registration for the fall semester of each year is known as Freshmen 
Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman status are expected to report as notified 
and, upon arrival, to participate in all of the scheduled activities of the week. These include orientation 
to the academic and residential requirements of the college and the resources that are available to 
assist all students in meeting them successfully, along with developmental guidance and instruction 
regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes that are essential for academic and personal success.

The Committee on Monitoring Students' Academic Progress (MSAP), which consists of a C 



Monitoring Students' Academic Progress (IVISAP) 



consortium of college administrators, departmental chairs, faculty, and staff, ensures students' 
conformance and compliance to the academic policies of the institution. Qualitative and quantitative 
data of students, such as GPAs, class reports, class failures, remediation, withdrawals, incompletes, C 

and maximum time frames for academic work completion, are all used to determine a student's 
chances of successfully completing their major course of study. 

At least twice a year, this committee meets to review the academic progress of students whose Q 

academic standing is in jeopardy. Recommendations are made based on the data presented. The 
student may be warned, retained, suspended or dismissed according to this data. 

The committee considers a student's academic progress to be in a serious status when the C, 
first semester's current GPA is less than 1 .00, or after two semesters, the cumulative GPA is less 
than 1.50, or after four semesters or a total of 64 hours, the cumulative GPA is less than 2.00. 
Students in these categories are subject to academic suspension. ^

development of Oakwood students by assisting students to develop skills in time management and 
study skills. In addition, students who have scored less than 500 on the TOEFL must take EN 090 
and EN 091 during the first year. (^ 

These remedial courses, which are in addition to the 128 hours needed for graduation, must 
each be passed with a minimum grade of C. Any course failed must be repeated the next semester 
until passed. Grades and hours received from remedial courses will not be computed for graduation (Z,

Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of Biological Sciences to develop in its students a thorough 
understanding of and an appreciation of the principles underlying the basic functions of living organisms. 
The curriculum is designed for those students wishing to enter graduate, medical, dental, or allied 
health schools, as well as for those planning to teach in elementary or secondary schools. Opportunity 
is also available for laboratory research for those planning to enter research careers. 

High School Preparation 

Courses in biology, chemistry, general science, and mathematics are all highly desirable, 
and it is strongly recommended that all high school students wishing to pursue a career in the 
sciences take these classes. 

Application for Admission 

To be admitted as a major in the Department of Biological Sciences, students must have 
completed at least 32 hours of course work, including EN 112 Freshman Composition and Bl 
132 Genera! Biology, and have an overall GPA of 2.25. 

Exit Examination 

All senior biology majors are required to take one of the following exit examinations: the ETS 
Biology Test, which must be passed within two standard deviations of the national norm or the 
GRE Advanced Biology Test which must be passed with a score of at least 850. 

Career Opportunities 

Biology remains the major of choice for students who desire to become medical doctors. 
However, biology, the study of living things, is a science that encompasses many specialties and 
opportunities for rewarding careers. Modern biology pursues the quest for a full understanding, at 
the molecular level, of the basic mechanisms underlying life processes, while also concerning itself 
with current social issues related to human health, behavior, overpopulation, and the impact made 
on the earth's natural, life-sustaining environment. Many trained biologists and health professionals 

59 



will be needed In the search for effective answers to such dilemmas as AIDS, cancer, autoimmune 
disorders, and inborn errors of metabolism. 

Graduates from this department may also pursue careers in agriculture, allied health profes- 
sions, environmental sciences, dentistry, medicine, and teaching.

Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of Chemistry to prepare its students for acceptance into 
graduate and professional schools, to provide training required for employment in the laboratories 
of government and industry, and to prepare them for careers in teaching chemistry at the secondary 
level. While pursuing these objectives, the department seeks to offer its students a quality program 
of chemical education that underscores the importance of the liberal arts and nurtures the 
integration of faith and reason. 

It is the purpose of the Allied Health Program to prepare students choosing allied health careers, 
to give guidance regarding the choice of schools to complete their professional education, and to aid 
in their placement in professional school. 

High School Preparation 

Students planning to study chemistry at Oakwood should include as many science and 
mathematics courses as possible in high school, and they should endeavor to make superior grades 
in these courses. The following courses are strongly recommended: Algebra I, Algebra II, Precaicu- 
lus, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. 

Application for Admission 

To be admitted as a major in the Department of Chemistry, students must have completed at 
least 32 hours of course work, including EN 112 Freshman Composition, and have an overall 
minimum GPAof2.25. 

Exit Examinations 

Chemistry majors will be required to take an exit examination prepared by the American 
Chemical Society that will be administered in the junior year. The examination is designed to

Ask an old chemist what he would like most, and his answer would be, "a young chemist." This 
statement describes the atmosphere of enthusiasm about chemistry and chemical research that 
permeates the department. Indeed, chemistry at Oakwood is an exciting confrontation of the C^ 
student with the theories and the methods of modern chemistry and biochemistry. Many of the 
graduates of this department have earned doctoral degrees in science, medicine, and dentistry from 
some of the most prestigious universities in this country and in Europe. Others have achieved ^ 
successful careers in the laboratories of government and industry as chemists, biochemists, and 
engineers. Oakwood has been listed as one of the 23 historically Black colleges that are most 
productive of Black scientific talent. C* 

Most of the growth that is occurring in health professions is happening in the allied health careers. 
Physical therapy, occupational therapy and physician assistant are examples of allied health careers 
that are consistently on the Bureau of Labor Statistics list of highly desirable-professions that will C^ 
enjoy good salaries and job security due to their role in the health care system and because demand 
outstrips supply. Minority students are especially needed in the allied health professions, as Blacks 
are underrepresented in almost every health profession. However, good academic preparation is vital C» 
to success. Therefore, the Allied Health curriculum and advisement are designed to maximize 
academic success and support the College's mission to assist in the development of Christian 
character. C^

Mission 

The Department of English and Foreign Languages provides quality Christian education for 
students from diverse educational backgrounds through its programs in English and foreign 
languages. These programs, in the words of the college mission statement, "are unequivocally 
Christian in character, designed to integrate faith and learning. ...prepareindividuals for service to God 
and humanity, and provide an atmosphere for appreciation for oneself and affirmation of cultural 
diversity." 

Purpose 

The Department of English and Foreign Languages serves a dual purpose. On the one hand, it 
functions as the college's largest service department, and on the other, it offers majors in two distinct 
programs. 

A. Service Department 

The department provides a major segment of the liberal arts curriculum through its general 
education offerings in writing, literature, and foreign languages; and it provides remedial courses in 
reading, writing, and English as a second language. Through general education and remedial course 
offerings, the department thus serves every student. 

B. Majors 

• The English program is intended to meet the needs of students desiring a strong liberal arts 
background and/or superior writing skills for the job market, offering the traditional English major 
as well as a major in professional writing. Graduates pursue advanced studies in English and related 
fields, and English is also a major of choice for law school aspirants. 

• The foreign language program, in conjunction with Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA), provides 
students with an opportunity to acquire knowledge of the geography, culture, and language of a 
particular country. The program meets prerequisites for graduate school, and bilingual students find 
unlimited opportunities for service in the corporate world.

Department of Music 



Professor: Lacy, Osterman 

Associate Professors: Chambers (Chair), Crarey, Kim 

Assistant Professors: Bucl<nor, iVIoore 



Majors: Music (B.A.) 

IVIusic Education: Instrumental (B.S.) 
Music Education: Choral (B.S.) 
Theory and Composition (B.M.) 
Vocal Performance and Pedagogy (B.M.) 

Minor: Music 



Purpose 

The Music Department supports the mission of the college by providing students with access to 
quality music instruction, opportunities, and services. Students are prepared for graduate school and 
employment by offering curricula leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Bachelor of Science in Music 
Education, a Bachelor of Music in Theory Composition, and a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Pedagogy 
and Performance. Students who are committed to developing their vocal talent for service to God and 
to humankind are encouraged to apply. 

Application for Admission 

Music majors must fulfill all the general admission requirements of the College. Acceptance to 
the College, however, does not guarantee admission to the Music Department as a music major. 
Students who want to major or minor in music at Oakwood College will need to audition on their 
instrument or voice. The Admission Audition for the musicfaculty can be either in person or by audio/ 
video tape. This audition must be accompanied by three letters of recommendation. Students must 
take a written examination in music theory. 

How to Prepare for Auditions 

Naturally, study and practice on an instrument or voice is very important. While it is not a 
requirement for admission as a music major, most students auditioning for acceptance as music 
majors have had private lessons. All music majors at Oakwood, regardless of performance area, are 
required to reach a basic proficiency in piano, so piano study before college is useful. If deficiency 
is found in this area at the Admission Audition, the student will be required to take the Piano 
Proficiency course ML) 161-164, which must be completed by the end of the sophomore year to be 
admitted into the music degree program. Failure to accomplish this task may prolong the time for 
fulfilling the degree requirements. Foreign language study is also helpful particularly for voice majors; 
French, German or Italian is required. 

Music Ensemble Participation 

Majors and minors must participate in a departmental ensemble eight consecutive semesters 
(except when student teaching or doing internship) . Students may enroll in more than one ensemble, 
but must remain for the entire year. Large ensembles include Aeolians, College Choir, Wind 

163 



Ensemble, and Orchestra. Small ensembles Include composition, piano, chamber ensembles, vocal 
and instrumental. 

Examinations 



Solo Recital. Solo recitals are required for juniors, seniors, and minors. Individual instruction is 
required and must be preceded by a pre-recital four weeks prior to the recital date. 



Career Opportunities 



Major Requirements: 



164 



Placement. All entering students into the music department are required to take written and aural ^ 

placement examinations in music theory, piano proficiency, and in the applied area. The results of 
these exams are used to place students in classes appropriate to their level of ability. To obtain '^-^ 
Freshman standing as a music major, the student must qualify for MU 211, Theory I and ML) 165, (^ 
applied area. 

Piano Proficiency. All music majors must demonstrate keyboard proficiency by passing a piano ^ 

proficiency examination. Students who fail the exam will be required to take piano proficiency courses 
until the exam can be passed. This must be completed by the sophomore year. Keyboard proficiency '^ 

includes the ability to play hymns, scales, triads, several moderately easy compositions and ^ 

accompaniments, and harmonize simple folk melodies. 



tCr 



Exit Examinations. All majors in the Music Department are required to take a written exit i (^ 
examination, administered during the fall semester of the student's senior year, and pass with the 
minimum score of 70 percent. 









Study in the field of music offers a general creative education as well as skills in communication 
and analysis that are essential in most careers. Some students pursue careers closely related to 
music, such as performers, educators, songwriters, church musicians, conductors, arrangers, 
composers, musicologists and music business attorneys. Others choose careers behind the (^ 
scenes, or in the business area of music in careers such as producers, engineers, managers, agents, 
and in publishing and sales. Many careers do not require a specific major but rather a wide range 
of demonstrated skills and accomplishments. Thus, some graduates pursue careers in fields quite i ^ 
unrelated to music. Regardless of your career choices, increasing your marketability to employers ^ 
through internships, responsible work experience, good grades and involvement in college activities '^ 
are important. A bachelor's degree is sufficient for many entry-level positions, but for advancement ^ 
in an area of specialization, an advanced degree may be required. 

Bachelor of Afis in Music (Cr 

This degree offers a broad-based study of music within a liberal arts curriculum. Students ^ 
interested in general music as a double major are encouraged to pursue this degree. In addition to ^ 
the core requirements, students can elect one offive areas of concentration: general music, piano, 
voice, instrument, and composition.
